Tea Towel Review and a God Thing…

Keep Calm and Carry On

Recently I was asked if I’d be interested in reviewing some tea towels from www.all-tea-towels.co.uk    After looking over all the adorable tea towels on the website I chose two really cute  ones to review.  Of course I had to pick a pretty pink floral one…..

pink dish towel

See how pretty the flowers are!


I also picked one out for my hubby’s birthday!  You see, he’s a drummer and he carries a towel with him to dust off his drums, or even wipe a sweaty brow from time to time! lol  I got him this one, and there’s a story that goes along with it too! (Please read the whole thing…it was SO cool how this happened!)

keep calm and carry on

See, my hubby had seen the saying, “Keep Calm and Carry On” on a poster one day while we were in a craft store. (and yes, he does take me to craft stores…I’m a lucky lady!)  He said he REALLY liked that saying on the poster and I kind of tucked that away in my brain.  To make a long story short when I was approached to do this review by www.all-tea-towels.co.uk, I saw this adorable tea towel and got it for him as a surprise for his b-day and hid it away for a while. This is where the story gets interesting…..he is the worship pastor at our church and our senior pastor was going to be out of town and asked him to preach.  This was the very first time he would preach so we were pretty excited about it!   He had a whole week to prepare and I didn’t bug him about what he was going to preach, or even ask…I didn’t want to make him nervous.  He was to preach on Sunday night and on that Sunday morning I got the bulletin that announced what would be taking place for the day…it announced my hubby would be preaching and the name of his sermon was “Keep Calm and Carry On”!! When we got home I told him I had something for him…I gave him the tea towel and we both knew at that moment that it was a confirmation from God that he was indeed supposed to preach that message, on that very day, you see it has been months since he had seen that poster!  How cool is that?  I love it when God talks to us like that. :0)  Oh, and he did a marvelous job preaching too! His entire sermon was Keep Calm, Carry On…You are not alone.  (saying God is always with us…even in the midst of our storms)

So these tea towels are not only beautiful and sturdy, but this one in particular was a gift from God. (and www.all-tea-towels.co.uk )  :0)  If you’re in the market for some really lovely towels, that have held up wonderfully for me, I would recommend you go over and look at the tea towels on this site.  I had a hard time choosing because there are oodles of great ones to pick from!

I had a hard time not getting this one…isn’t she lovely!


AND this one!


These are very well made too…see the hems..


I have my pink floral one hanging in my kitchen.  I received the towels a while back, but asked if I could wait a couple of weeks so I could do an honest review….they were happy to oblige me. 

So this is my honest review…I adore my tea towels and wouldn’t hesitate to purchase more!

Here’s the website again if you’d like to go take a look!

Hope you all have a blessed day!
I have another update on my window seat…I’ll post it soon!

Hey Girl!

I LOVE your story, the Lord certainly works in mysterious ways. :)

I adore the tea towels and can't wait to check out their website!

Hope you enjoyed your Easter, have a fabulous week!

Really neat story....I didn't realize your hubby is a pastor. That explains why you are always so positive and wonderfully happy...and charming...and encouraging. You make a wonderful preacher's wife. The towel you passed up but had a hard time passing up IS really pretty, I agree.

Oh Missy, that is so cool! Yes isn't it awesome how God works!!!

Now a question or two about the towels.... do they dry really well? What are they made from? I really, really dislike towels that are not super absorbent and for some reason I dislike terry cloth. So for years I used flour sack towels or cloth diapers but now... well I have my lovely red towels from Pottery Barn (they were on clearnace) however they have quit selling dish towels....

Have a wonderful week! (know what? my hubby goes to the craft store with me also... i think hobby lobby might be his secret weakness.)

That is a wonderful story. It was meant to be and you picked the towel perfectly! Oh Yes how hard it would be to CHOOSE! I REALLLLY LOVE the roses one you chose AND the ROSES one your didn't get. "It's GORGEOUS"! I'll have to go explore the site!
I am SUCH A FAN of tea towels. My next to the LAST POST I did was how I use them as little table cloths! LOVE THEM!!!

Wow! I can't believe that I can finally see your blog. I don't know what was going on but I do know that I've missed being able to see your posts and been missing you too. Several blogs have been that way for me. Don't know if it's my computer or what.

What a beautiful story about your husband and the towels. We just recently experienced something similar. The way God works is amazing!

P.S. Mine goes to craft stores with me also. :) And to thrift stores, junk stores, dumpster divings, etc. :)
